We attended our friends destination wedding. It was awesome. The resort is fantastic. Awesome friendly staff. The food was great, with lots of variety. The beach was incredible. The electrical outlets in the room were 220V European type, to plug in Canadian appliances we used a converter. I would go back in a heart beat.

This was our first trip to Cuba and the ratings for Iberostar Varadero were thoroughly deserved. Arriving at Varadero Airport, the time to proceed through passport control and baggage reclaim was relatively trouble free. The journey to the hotel was fairly quick and check-in was smooth. We were placed in one of the blocks at the back of the hotel... More

A lovely hotel, grounds were fantastic and overall kept well. The food was good and the standard expected from an all inclusive. The food offer from midnight onwards if you fancied a snack or fell a sleep like we did a few times and ate late was very average and one of the reasons for the four not five rating!... More

We were here for a destination wedding. Perfect. Lovely beach setting with champagne reception. Our choice of meal from a la carte menu in public dining room closed for our small group. Dancing with excellent DJ at beach bar, also closed for us. Staff made it a very special day. We had a junior suite which was large and spacious... More

Stayed here in May 2015. Nice beach. However 1. service was poor (front desk staff not helpful with respect to fixing our ground floor patio door which would not lock) and 2. major food quality and safety concerns. Food flavors really missed the mark. Wished they would serve Cuban food since perhaps they would be better at preparing this. Compared... More
